what they say

​“As an instructor, Yvonnick is very approachable and that helps me get over any anxiety about practicing with him during the lessons, especially when he is so skilled and I am not. I also appreciate his span of knowledge on the instrument; from jazz to blues or even blue grass. I can tell you I am much much better now after his instructions.”​

​Michael Burns


​“Yvonnick’s course was fun, laid back and informative. I find that the lessons have a good structure to them and are easy to follow. The material for home study you provide has been a great help for practice sessions at home. An inspired class and instructor.”

​Esther Kim



Yvonnick Prene has fast become one of the rising stars in the harmonica world. He has recorded with top Jazz artists like Chris Potter, Pedro Martinez, Peter Bernstein and toured in the USA, Europe and Africa.

Yvonnick was already playing the harmonica professionally at the age of 17, in Parisian club scenes. He later earned a master’s degree in music at the Sorbonne University in Paris, in 2011 and while still enrolled, he moved to New-York City to receive multiple full-tuition scholarships at the City College of New York, Columbia University and at The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music. 

Yvonnick is the founder of New York Harmonica School, author of 13 books, bandleader of the Yvonnick Prene.


​Harmonica Sensation Yvonnick adds another level of textural novelty...a virtuoso Harmonica Player.​


​Yvonnick Prene is skilled and talented without a doubt but there is a depth to him that calls to the depths within the listener. It is no wonder that he is in such demand.​
